previous procedure, which preferred simply "Bug#NNNN".

I wish you guys settle on something once and for all, never mind what,

"you guys"?  I thought you were one of us!  :-)

I did not choose the "Fixes: bug#NNNN" syntax. I vaguely recall it came from an offhand remark in one of Stefan's emails a few months ago and that it migrated into CONTRIBUTE when Stephen Leake attempted to summarize that discussion, but possibly it was a typo in Stefan's message and anyway I expect he doesn't much care what the format is.

From the earlier discussion in this thread it appears that the "Fixes: debbugs:NNNN" syntax is an artifact of the Bzr-to-Git conversion that now causes more confusion than it's worth. To try to lessen this I installed the attached patches (the third one is mechanical; it's the result of 'make change-history').
